LANYON MUSIC PERFORMANCE: Performing the Past
Performing the Past at Lanyon calls on the talents of musicians and composers from different backgrounds to engage with the musical history of two heritage listed homes – an engagement which is different to anything they have embarked on to this date.
By performing within the house and in the spaces around it, using the house music collections and the inspiration gleaned from historical documentation – oral histories, letters and diaries – of the past occupants, the musicians will have a unique experience of acting as intermediaries between contemporary audiences and Canberra’s early settlers. The musicians and composers participating in the project are: Ian Blake, Sandra France, Dr Jennifer Gall and Alistair Noble.
This event is coordinated by Dr Jennifer Gall and supported by artsACT.
